Background Investigations
When conducting a background check, the first thing an employer will look into is your past history. This can range from criminal convictions to motor vehicle violations and even credit scores!

Eavesdropping detection
Eavesdropping detection services are a necessary security measure to make sure your business is protected from electronic eavesdroppers. These counter-surveillance measures help identify traditional bugs, as well as those that use bluetooth or wifi networking for surveillance purposes–and we’ll go ahead and patch up any vulnerabilities too!

Forensics investigators
Forensics investigators are instrumental in solving crimes. They work closely with law enforcement officials and other forensics professionals, collecting evidence such as fingerprints or bodily fluids to identify who committed crime.

Infidelity investigations
Infidelity investigations involve following someone thought to be cheating and obtaining photographic or video evidence for divorce, child custody proceedings.

Insurance investigations
The goal of a claims investigator is to uncover the truth, and they’re really good at it. They can use their skills for any number of reasons including insurance investigations where false or inflated claims are common place- which means that if you make one yourself then this person might be just what your looking for!

Person location services
Missing Persons Private Investigative Services
Private investigators might use background checks, witness questioning or other investigative techniques to identify suspects or individuals who can help locate the missing person.

Process serving
a person who serves legal documents, as subpoenas, writs, or warrants, especially those requiring appearance in court.

Surveillance services
In a number of different situations, surveillance services are utilized to gather evidence. These can include cases involving infidelity and fraudulent injury claims as well any other scenarios where it’s necessary for clients’ allegations that they were cheated or scammed by their partner(s).

Accident Investigations
When an incident occurs, it’s important to determine the cause and take necessary corrective actions so that similar incidents don’t happen again. It may be hard for some people in our lives (family members) who are affected by what happened at first but they will understand once we explain how this can help prevent future problems down the line
The goal of any successful investigation isn’t just pointing fingers–it’s finding solutions moving forward.

Activity Checks
Activity checks are a great way to see how much time an individual spends doing certain activities. This can help determine whether surveillance may be necessary in order for you stay on top of things and protect your rights as well!

Asset Searches
The asset search is an important part of any investigation. This process confirms information such as the owner, history and location to help with your case
A successful completion will lead you closer towards getting what’s rightfully yours!

Bug Sweep
The days of privacy are over. With the rise in technology, almost anyone can easily and cheaply acquire surveillance devices to watch you without your knowledge or consent – but it’s important not just for personal safety that these measures be taken seriously as well! A trained investigator will use their expertise with electronic countermeasure services so they’re sure nothing illegal took place during any incident where such equipment may have been used (especially if there were children involved).

Call Detail Records Analysis
A call detail record (CDR) is a data record produced by a telephone exchange or other telecommunications equipment that documents the details of a telephone call or other telecommunications transactions (e.g., text message) that passes through that facility or device. The record contains various attributes of the call, such as time, duration, completion status, source number, and destination number.

Child Abuse Investigations
When a child is alleged to have been abused, the investigator must first ascertain their safety and then gather information necessary for resolving issues or making an informed decision on what type of complaint this really involves. Every person with whom they come into contact during investigations may not always be credible; but by paying attention in detail – listening closely- investigators will find evidence that can help them decide whether there’s anything worth pursuing here at all!

Child Custody Battle
The battle for custody can be an emotionally charged and arduous process, but it need not always end in legally enforceable agreements. You may find yourself at odds with your spouse even after the court reaches its decision on how best to divide time or finances between parents who are still living together as partners during their children’s lives–and sometimes that means disagreeing about what’s right instead of coming up with compromise solutions like shared parenting plans which don’t work out well long term because one party usually gets shafted by them sooner rather than later anyway.

Child Custody Cases
The South Carolina family court is required by law to determine what’s best for children in custody disputes. The “best interests of the child” standard means that even if one parent has taken care them more often than another, they might still lose out on having primary physical responsibility (custody) unless there’s some other compelling reason why it should be awarded elsewhere – but typically this would not happen without an extremely high level assurance from both parents about how much time will actually spent together during weekdays or weekends as well any type holidays celebrated annually).

Child Custody Issue
When it comes to custody, the parents will usually share legal responsibility unless there are exceptional circumstances that indicate otherwise. Additionally, South Carolina’s child support laws allow for a non-custodial parent who has access and participation in their children’s school activities except when expressly prohibited by court order – just like any other state!

Civil Investigations
When citizens have a dispute, it’s up to the court system and law enforcement officers use all available resources including physical evidence such as samples from scenes or interviews with witnesses who may know something about what happened – even if they aren’t willing at first.

Civil Litigation Investigations
Civil litigation is any case where two or more parties are seeking monetary damages and does not include criminal accusations. Some cases go to trial in which a judge will determine the outcome, but not all of them do.

Claimant Interviews
In order to investigate a situation, you need reliable and important information that will help determine what happened or who needs involved in any future actions.

Cohabitation Investigations
Cohabitation is an arrangement where two people share the same bed but do not necessarily have a romantic or sexually intimate relationship. They may be involved in one another’s personal lives, however they’re still independent from each other.

Counter Measure Sweeps
The TSCM Technical Surveillance Countermeasure, also known as a bug sweep or electronic surveillance service is designed to detect the presence of eavesdropping devices such as hidden microphones.

Covert Camera Systems
Video surveillance is a common form of monitoring, but it can be difficult to know when your actions are being watched. A more invasive type called “covert” video that uses an audio track without showing up on screen prostitute its presence for non-routine investigative procedures and evidence anything tending towards proving or disproving any alleged fact in dispute; this may include things like footage from security cameras unexpected moments caught by luck during Google Street View trips
Coverage: The act/process involving collecting information about all potential customers so they’re not missed out due lack interest etc

Covert investigations
Covert investigations are often difficult and complex, but they employ discreet tactics to discover or prevent employee theft. They also work in cases of corporate Espionage & intellectual property theft among other things like drug use which can be very serious crimes if not handled properly with care being taken not only for the suspect’s rights under law (which always apply)but also because there might potentially lifesaving evidence at stake when dealing internally within an organization.

Criminal Defense Investigations
The criminal defense investigator’s job is to find evidence that can help your case. They do this by interviewing people, examining physical surroundings for clues and analyzing written material such as police reports or other documents related in crimes they may be investigating.

Death Investigations
When a loved one dies, it is devastating. The suddenness and unexpected nature of these deaths puts immense pressure on families to come up with answers as quickly as possible so they can move forward in their grief process – which often leads people looking for any kind of detail that will help find what happened or why this might have been preventable before its too late! At times like these we rely heavily upon science because technology always winning out over human error.

Disability Claims Investigator
Disability Claim Examiners review and process disability insurance claims according to procedure, ensuring that they are valid. They also have contact with agents who represent either side in a dispute–the policy holder or someone else seeking payment from an insurer like health care providers themselves would be one example (and there could even arise when patients seek reimbursement after receiving treatment).

Divorce And Child Custody Investigator
Child custody is an often tender topic in divorce proceedings, with emotions running high and sometimes even starting fights. This can be caused by things on either side of the spectrum: some people get too emotional while others need proof before they’ll believe anything (or anyone).

Hiring A Private Detective
In South Carolina and most other states, private investigators must be licensed. Licensing requirements vary, but rarely do they provide any guarantee of quality.

Hiring A Private Investigator

Lack of proper licensing can jeopardize an investigation, so make sure you know that the person(s) who will actually perform the work for you are properly licensed.
